To date, emcaso has been bootstrapped to kill a pain we found in our new life as active parents trying to care for such little vulnerable souls.
After years of research, Tomer and Fennel have found that sharing family care FAQs is problematic. Found that millions of other parents face the same core issues. Found that takes Parents/Guardians months if not hours to cough up and explain basic child care info, in ways that set up parents to fail. This is wrong. Unacceptable manual waste. Who has time for this impractical 20th century bullshit? The cost of this time is too high.
How can we evolve? Our solution automates manual administrative tasks.
